This Year's Highlights

Making a trip to Berlin is always worthwhile - 365/24

And oftentimes, the trip can be especially rewarding –on New Year’s Eve, for example, when hundreds of thousands of visitors welcome the new year at the Brandenburg Gate. And February, too, is especially notable, as this is when famous movie stars make their way down the red carpet for the international film festival Berlinale. And the Easter holidays traditionally see famous opera soloists coming to Berlin for the Festive Days of the Staatsoper.

Five minutes’ walking distance from Alexanderplatz. Huge hand-painted film posters hang on the sandstone façade of the postmodern building from the 60’s. Though its architecture is striking from the outside, the building’s most impressive features are found inside. With its magnificent chandeliers, retro eastern European style, red armchairs and huge glass front, the cinema’s foyer is a highlight in itself. Be it premieres or gay parties, this cinema hosts all sorts of events where glamorous VIPs mix with students, film lovers and party people.
